Brazilian ambassador to China Clodoaldo Hugueney Filho said here Thursday that Brazil and China should increase economic links to sustain growth.

Filho said when President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva met Chinese President Hu Jintao in May, both saw they have adopted similar measures, and they have very similar objectives.

He said both economies have shown signs of recovery, and will have strong growth next year, which is due to both governments adoption of measures to counter the economic crisis.

From 2006 to 2008, China-Brazil trade surged at an average annual growth of 50 percent and China replaced the United States as Brazil's top trade partner in April.

Brazil's Ministry of Development, Industry and Foreign Commerce said trade with China in April reached 3.2 billion U.S. dollars, compared to 2.8 billion dollars with the United States.

Filho suggested that if China wants to maintain this momentum, it has to diversify Brazil' s exports to China, try to promote more balanced export and promote a greater flow of investment between the two countries.

Brazil has become tourist destination for Chinese in 2005. Filho said tourism needs a lot of attention.

The two countries must promote better knowledge about Brazil in China and about China in Brazil. They must also establish air direct links between Brazil and China, Filho said.

"It is very difficult to promote tourism if you do not have a single direct air flight between the two countries," he said.

"Fortunately AirChina and our national airline TAM have established code share agreement. But this is only one flight, we are having more direct flights using other stopovers enroute to Brazil," he said.

The two countries must also establish agencies that can receive tourists from both countries, he said.

"Tourism between Brazil and China will grow significantly because Brazilian people, especially after the Olympic Games, began looking at China and the relations between Brazil and China.So people want to go to China and see China and Brazilian people are very good tourists," he said.
